Inspired by ballet, Aromaleigh Mineral Makeup comes up with a really romantic, yet colorful eye makeup collection :
This is a gathering of lush shades, not just the expected ballet pink. For me, ballet is dramatic, emotional, and full of tragic beauty. With almost 20 years of ballet study, I watch not only dreaming that I could be on the stage, but knowing the iron strength and control that the most ethereal, graceful dancer must have.
“En Pointe” has a little bit of everything… plush matte shades with graceful iridescent highlights, a brilliant shimmering black and white that can make any color into whatever you imagine, and some lovely frosts with multi-faceted effects. Most of this year’s collections have been straight frosts with vivid sparkling highlights, but this collection is more understated while still being full of mystery and transient beauty.
The photos of these colors barely touch what they truly are like in person…
The color descriptions, from the Aromaleigh website, are as follows,
Arabesque: A refined bluish green with highlight shimmers of green and gold. Multi-facted and rich frost. (Frost)
Odile: A deep and mysterious smooth, lush mauve sheen with iridescent shine of green and blue and earthy undertones. (Smooth frost)
Pirouette: Soft peachy pink plush matte base with hazy blue iridescence. So pretty! (Sheen)

Serenade: A color inspired by my favorite ballet. Beautiful smooth teal plush matte base with a lush violet iridescent highlight. (Sheen)
Calliope: As lovely as the muse herself, this is a go-to color. A soft plush matte base beholds softly shimmering beige and lilac tones. (Sheen, slight shimmer)
Giselle: A sweet and softly shimmering plush tea rose matte base enhanced with a delicate pink and gold highlight. As precious as the beautiful Giselle. (Sheen)

They remind me of spring colors, just a bit more vivid. I think these shades are very very wearable, and I’m excited to get my hands on them. How about you, how do you find Aromaleight’s En Pointe Collection?
